We can now confirm that Beachbum Berry is going to be making the scene at the oceanfront house for Follynesia! He and Bosko have been poking around California for vintage Tiki about as long as anybody and they share their tales of exploration with us. The Bum will be telling of his great cocktail adventures and we will of course mix up a batch of something wonderful to taste.

Yet more reasons to get on the mailing list and get ready to make your reservation for this week of old school fun and surf...

Visir www.Follynesia.com to sign up

And yes, we are working on more great things to come!

So, get this, for less than you could get a room for a couple of nights on Folly Beach, you will get:

  • A week on the beach, oceanfront at Folly
  • A carving class with Bosko and Basement Kahuna
  • A Tropical cocktail talk and drink tasting with the man who literally wrote the book on Tropical cocktails, The Bum
  • A talk on the early exploration of California Tiki with Bosko and The Bum. These guys were looking for Tiki just about before anybody in our generation
  • Live jams playing surf and hapa haole
  • A California Tiki history lesson from Bosko and The Bum
  • A kick off party at the Junglero Lounge
  • Great surfing if you want
  • Charleston just minutes away to explore
  • Swap and share Tiki ephemera collections
  • My vintage islands slide show
  • Preview of the DVD of Tiki
  • Viewing of my tribute to Kahiki DVD
  • A nice Low Country boil of fresh seafood...


Doesn't get much better than that!

I'm really looking forward to this.

Howland, get me 2 long boards and staple them together length wise so I can get on a wave. I put the Cow in Cowabunga.

Also, Jeff Berry will taste one of Basement Kahuna's Concubines whether he wants to or not and will add it to his next book. Guaranteed.

I'm going to do a 4 hour tribute to Barry Manilow on the Uke. Should be really invigorating. Like a Nora Ephron screenplay.

Any way to get an idea of the cost of this, I think this is going to be an amazing time, but I would like to get an idea if it is even in my ability to fit in my budget.

Tickets for those not staying in the beach house will be around $100 for the whole weekend of events.

The pricing ranges from about $700 for a King bedroom for the week and down to around $300 for one of the twin or bunk beds for the week. That's the package deal and is a week in the beach house and the carving class and everything included. We are still tweaking it and will hopefully have it ready by the end of the weekend for reservations. That should give you an idea.

Compared to the $150 a night rate at the Holiday Inn down the street, this is an incredible deal for an incredible week.

Gotcha covered, P--maybe I'll be able to fashion you up your own outrigger and you can play sweet Hawaiian serenades from the surf to us! We'll christen her and she shall be called 'The Fab'lus Pablus'!

That is great news, for what you have planned, that is a great weeks worth for the cost.

Yep. At around $300 per person to stay on the beach in Folly for a week is unheard of. Throw in The Bum, Bosko, BK, Pablus, live surf music, cocktails made to perfection... Well, it's off the charts!

Not yet, but soon. If you are on the mailing list, click it when you get the news...

Bunk bed is about $44 a night, and minus the event price, it's more like $24 a night...
